When the interviewer pressed him further on whether Trump needs to apologize for the “Second Amendment” comment in reference to Hillary Clinton he defended the nominee vigorously.
“First of all nobody made…you’re using that word [assassinate],” he said. “He didn’t say that word, don’t do that. Don’t distort what he said. Listen, he’s fooling around.”
“He’s being attacked continuously and they are taking apart everything he does,” he added. “He made a wonderful speech yesterday. Everybody should sit down and listen to that speech, because it’s full of substance and tells you what the problems are and how to answer those problems.”
Voight endorsed Trump back in March and has offered to help the campaign take down Hillary Clinton.
